  1. You know what I like most about this recipe - the coating does not overwhelm the peanuts. You get a nice even coat on the peanuts but not clumps of the sugar where you feel it is too sweet. The background flavor is perfect and the recipe is spot on in directions...very easy to follow. Makes for a great treat around the house and great little gifts in a tin for friends. Thanks for sharing. Made for the Let's Party event 2010.
  2. These were pretty good, more like peanut brittle and less like "toffee" peanuts. I was looking for the more golden brown look as well as coating. Don't get me wrong, Karo and butter and sugar are great :-) These were not to die for. Good for my 4th of July Party - the bowl did get eaten. :-) Oh and I doubled the coating based on 1 review. I might consider just doing it as the recipe says as well
  3. I made these last night to get a jump on making Christmas treats. The directions were easy to follow, ingredients were all things I had on hand. I found that 20 minutes was definitely enough time and it may have even needed less time in my oven. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I think I would have liked more coating on these. In the end, I'll probably just stick with the spiced nut recipe I usually use, but thank you for posting this so I could try making something different!
  4. These were pretty good, I think they need a little more coating. My husband could hardly taste the mix just the peanuts unless he ate a whole cluster... the flavor is great, next time I will increase the coating! Thanks
  5. I can't stop eating these! These are so quick and easy to prepare. I love the cinnamon in them. I will save this recipe for next Christmas for sure. Thanks! Made for Recipe Swap.
